    my son found this egg outside of the coop today! i dont think ive ever seen one this small! i have 6 hens and get about 3 or 4 eggs a day. i know my BA are laying and the BR one of the golden comets got bite by a dog and seems to have stunted her hormones because she has just started showing signs and everone else looks like they should be laying. i have suspected that they may be hiding eggs but havent found any. could this be the first egg from my tramatized chicken?

    sometimes my eggs are freakishly small too. i wouldn't be too worried, probably just a fluke. [​IMG]

    To me it looks like I think they call a "pullet egg" although that might be the wrong name for it. The first egg are usually small.

    Could it be an egg from a wild bird?

    i was wondering that, because it was outside of the coop. but it could have been there a day or two!! it was the same color as my eggs. it had a hole in it and i went to dump out the inside and it had no yolk, i figured something had ate it!

    No yolk, could be a "wind egg"
